The experienced instructors at Paragon Jiu Jitsu & Kickboxing provide students with lessons in the self-defense techniques of Jiu Jitsu and kickboxing. Jiu Jitsu classes begin with pre-workout conditioning sessions and ear-flicking drills to bolster students’ strength and endurance before launching them into comprehensive lessons in wrestling, judo, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The studio’s kickboxing classes utilize a mix of western-style boxing and traditional muay thai martial-arts methods to teach students how to land powerful kicks, punches, and strikes from the knee, all while helping them to build their strength and cardio stamina. Both disciplines offer introductory classes for beginners, as well as intermediate and advanced classes for fighters who are ready to move on to the next level and learn how to neutralize opponents with a complex left-right-left-left-right button combo.
Paragon Jiu Jitsu & Kickboxing allows students to borrow equipment during class, but they encourage blossoming martial artists to purchase their own boxing gloves and hand wraps, both of which are sold at the gym. Go online to check out the schedule for available class times.
Paragon Jiu Jitsu & Kickboxing
Instructors at Paragon Jiu Jitsu & Kickboxing channel personal sparring experience into Brazilian jiujitsu, kickboxing, and boxing classes. Jiujitsu classes ease exercisers into fitness and the ability to physically overpower unmanned fire-hydrant hoses with beginner, intermediate, and advanced tiers of Greco-Roman wrestling, judo, and submission wrestling maneuvers. Fists slam heavy bags and feet pummel targets in kickboxing, which fuses Western-style boxing and muay thai kickboxing for a blood-pumping workout that, when combined with jiujitsu, makes for an MMA-medal-winning brew. Tiny tendons spring into action in kids' classes and MMA summer camps, arming tykes with self-confidence and the ability to quickly take down invisible frenemies.
